Samsung had already introduced its 50 megapixel ISOCELL GN5 sensor with the Galaxy S22 and S22+. A very similar model works with the 50 megapixel GN3 sensor in the current Galaxy S23 und S23+. It was actually considered certain that the same 50 megapixel chip would also be recycled in the Galaxy S24 and S24+. However, a new tip suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25+’s in-house sensors have to give way to chips from Sony.
The new report comes from reliable tipster Revegnus, who has a solid track record when it comes to Samsung phone rumors. However, there are still no concrete details about the actual camera sensors. After all, we are still more than a year away from the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S25 series.
According to rumors, Samsung also works on a new 200-megapixel ISOCELL sensor with a 1-inch footprint for the Galaxy S25 Ultra. The chip offers 0.8 µm pixels, dual pixel autofocus and in-sensor crop zoom.
The only other known rumor about the Samsung Galaxy S25 series is the upcoming Exynos 2500 chipset. Samsung has regularly had to give way to Qualcomm when it comes to top-end performance in recent years. This is exactly what happened again this year with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. Therefore, the Exynos 2500 should open a new chapter in performance with a 10-core CPU and an X4 prime core based on Samsung’s 3nm process. So far, the only smartphones with 3nm chipsets are the Apple iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
